Opening day brings joy all around the world as baseball is upon us. Opening day also brings us some of the best pitching matchups of the season, which is what we had as the Minnesota Twins took on the Toronto Blue Jays. Going for the Twins was superstar ace, Johan Santana and Toronto threw all-star Roy Halladay. The game was a complete pitching dual up until the 6th inning when the Twins exploded for 3 runs thanks to a stolen base by Shannon Stewart, an infield single by Joe Mauer and a 3 run blast by Justin Morneau, which may I add all happened with 2 outs. As for Johan Santana, he was carrying a perfect game up until the bottom of the 7th when Alex Rios managed to hit a bloop single into left field. Johan ended up finishing the game with a 1 hit shutout, and totalling 9 strikeouts with his biggest victim being Bengie Molina who counted for 3 of the k's. When asked about throwing a perfect game, Johan replied that he had no idea that he was carrying one for that long, and if he did, would have probably located the pitch Rios hit in a different spot. Johan also stated that even though the perfect game was broken up, he was very happy with his performance and predicts another great pitching matchup for tomorrow. Tomorrow the Twins will throw Brad Radke while the Blue Jays will put one of the biggest free agent acquisitions of the season in AJ Burnett on the hill. Until next time.

"Mishaps for Twins All Around"

Riding back into the Rogers Centre after an opening day win, the Minnesota Twins looked confident and felt like they could pull off a 2nd win in a row. With a 2 run top of the 3rd, it made them that more confident. But then came the bottom half of the inning. The first batter of the inning, Aaron Hill rocked a first pitch fastball down the middle of the plate for a homerun, that pitch would also result in the last pitch thrown for Brad Radke for the rest of the season as he tore his right shoulder muscle. In to relieve Radke, the manager brought out Scott Baker, who didn't do too much for the Twins as he gave up 5 runs in only 3 innings, including giving up 2 homeruns to Blue Jay Vernon Wells. Being down 6-2, the Twins were able to score a run in both the 7th and 8th innings, and with Nick Punto getting on with his 3rd hit of the game and 2 outs in the top of the 9th, Toronto reliever BJ Ryan was able to get Shannon Stewart to fly out on a deep fly ball to end the game. After the game was over, the General Manager went into the Free Agent pool and signed SP Wes Obermueller to a 2 year deal. And hopefully for the Twins, they will be composed to try and take the series from the Blue Jays tomorrow night.
